Scarborough Athletic chairman Trevor Bull has revealed that new boss John Deacey met all of their appointment criteria.

The selection committee of Bull, Fred Firman and Paul Exley eventually narrowed it down to the former Farsley and Bradford Park Avenue chief after a lengthy selection process, which involved over 40 applicants.

Now the Boro board are hoping that their decision reaps the rewards.

“We are very happy with our choice,” he said. “We set out a the criteria for the type of person we wanted and John met them all.”

“As a board we wanted experience and success on the CV. John has played his part in six promotions, two in the league we are in and others in the league above, which is where we want to be.

“”He plays an attractive brand of football, which is what we want. We’ve always hated playing against his teams because they are well organised and I don’t think we’ve ever managed to beat him.”
